Zola would turn in his grave.
19 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

If you are curious enough to know how abysmal French post nouvelle vague cinema can turn,this is the movie to choose.Adapting the second volume of Emile Zola's Rougon-Macquart saga and transposing the action to the sixties -complete with pop art,rock music and sitar!!!-Roger Vadim completely makes a fool of himself:the dialogue is so ridiculous that it's involuntary funny:(Piccoli to his wife who wants to get a divorce "i can't give you your money back;I have invested it in my business.Fonda(the wife):but it's robbery! )Fonda wants to get divorce because she's in love with her stepson,Piccoli's offspring.

Jane Fonda ,after "Barbarella" ,will turn around from these Vadim disasters and come back to making great movies with "they shoot horses don't they?"(1969)Of course,Claude Renoir's cinematography is astounding as ever and redeems this laughable soap opera a bit.So does Piccoli's desirable mansion:the conservatory and the bedrooms where Fonda and her lover play around while avoiding prying eyes,que c'est chic!
